Perusing the photography of Ian Webb elicits emotions similar to what one might feel traveling the world in a moment; to become a part of each culture's most personal routines and expeditions and feel the waters of the Yangtze run through your fingers in one moment and the cobbled streets of London beneath your feet in the next. 

Mid-Century Postwar Italian Photography

Photography // Saturday, May 10, 2014
Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica, Federico Fellini. These were the pillars of Italian Neorealism; the auteurs who captured the psyche and desolate conditions of the Italian lower-class from 1944 to 1952, lost in a desperation that poverty begets. Their contemporaries, photographers like Ugo Zovetti, Ferruccio Crovatto, and Bruno Rosso, used their medium in similar fashion.

Nikki S. Lee

Photography // Friday, May 09, 2014
In her photographic series “Projects”, South Korean artist Nikki S. Lee fully immersed herself a-la-Daniel Day Lewis into each role she portrayed in her photographs.

Formento & Formento

Photography // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
In the photographic works of husband and wife team Formento & Formento, it’s easy to see their inspiration and love for theatrical narratives. Echoing the dramatic lighting of Hithcock, the depictions of solitude by Edward Hopper, and the versatile female roles portrayed by Cindy Sherman, each image is it’s own story belonging to each character depicted in the photographs.
